What will Kim Jones have in store for the upcoming collection from Dior Men?
The runway setup is as much a work of art as the fashion collection itself, as time and time have proven again. From the giant floral Kaws statue in the Summer 2019 show to the futuristic robotic live show done in Tokyo for the brand’s Pre-Fall 2019 collection, the runway shows under Jones has been works of art, to say the least.
This time around, Kim Jones will be collaborating with LA-based painter Kenny Scharf. His iconic and instantly-recognisable murals have been a mainstay in the 80s East Village scene in New York, alongside big names like Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring. His universe is a colourful one, filled with cartoons, bright colours, surrealism, and distorted forms and spaces.
In the video above, you will see an exclusive behind-the-scenes view of the runway setup as well as a peek into the Dior Men’s Fall 2021 collection featuring the artist’s illustrations. To say we’re excited would be an understatement. View the runway show with us live at tonight at 9PM Malaysia time, December 8th 2020 from the live stream below.
